Nexus 5 2015 vs. Xiaomi Mi 4C – What Do They Have In Common?
The Xiaomi Mi 4c is expected to be unveiled on Tuesday, but we know everything about it, thanks to several leaks which surfaced the internet. Unfortunately, the Nexus 5 2015 (Nexus 5X) is still shrouded in mystery and we hear all kinds of rumors about its specs and release date. If the rumors are true, then Google will unveil it on September 29, along with the Nexus 6 2016 phablet, but we’ll wait and see if this will happen.
Designs and Displays
The majority of rumors claim that the Nexus 5 2015, also known as Nexus 5X, will feature a 5.2-inch with a Full HD resolution with 424ppi, and according to the latest leaks, it will come with a plastic back which will house a fingerprint scanner – below the rear camera. Months ago, on Twitter started appearing all kinds of rumors about the dimensions of the next Nexus 5, so we’re expecting the phone to measure 146.9×72.9×8/9.8mm, being slimmer at the edges and thicker in the middle, which means that the body will be curved.
The Xiaomi 4C will have a rectangular body with a plastic back available in white and black. It will have curved edges, an IPS LCD screen measuring 5-inch, also with a Full HD resolution (441ppi), and the physical dimensions are 138.1 x 69.6 x 7.8 mm.
Both devices will be powered by a Qualcomm MSM8992 Snapdragon 808 hexa core processor which has four cores running at 1.44 GHz and two cores running at 1.82 GHz. Some rumors suggest that the Nexus 5 015 will support 2GB of RAM, likewise the Xiaomi 4C, while other voices are whispering that LG will add 3GB of RAM, but this mystery will be elucidated soon. It’s known that the Xiaomi 4C will offer 16GB of internal memory and it won’t receive a microSD card slot for expansion, but it’s uncertain if the Nexus 5 2015 will have the same memory capacity, or if LG will opt for two variants of 32GB and 64GB.
Even the cameras will be identical, because most of the new smartphones come with this pair of shooters with resolutions of 13MP and 5MP. We don’t know what features will be added to the Nexus 5 2015, but the Xiaomi 4C supports dual-LED flash and records 1080p videos at 30fps.
The Xiaomi 4C will be powered by a bigger battery of 3120 mAh battery, while the Nexus 5 2015 is rumored to house a battery of 2700mAh – upgraded from 2400mAh (the Nexus 5 2013 model).
